Ontario Health Card Name Change
The name on your Ontario health care card must be changed in person. Attend any Service Ontario office with your current health card and your original certificate.
Applicants must complete the ‘Ontario Change of Information form’, which can be downloaded from our site via the link below, or else pick this form up at a Service Ontario branch when you go into change names. If you have not yet upgraded to a photo card, you must show additional identification documents. Check the Service Ontario website for a comprehensive list.
You must have a marriage certificate, legal name change certificate, amended birth certificate or divorce order before changing names. The certificate should be issued from a provincial govenment authority. Please see our dedicated section on getting your Ontario marriage certificate, or else you can download the application form along with all your other name change paperwork below.

Also ensure your Ontario driver’s licence is given priority when changing names, as many companies may ask to see your updated licence instead of a marriage certificate.
